Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Mr Michael Stellakis is one of the UK’s leading laparoscopic abdominal surgeons, offering a range of state-of-the-art treatments for hernia, gallbladder disease, colon cancer, sports groin injuries, and irritable bowel syndrome, from his private practice at Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital.

Mr Stellakis is one of the few UK surgeons who has performed over 2000 TEP laparoscopic hernias with excellent audited results and is the most experienced laparoscopic hernia surgeon in the Midlands. This technique, whilst more complex to perform than other keyhole or open repairs, affords the patient less pain and scarring and quicker recovery whilst being safer than other techniques.

Mr Stellakis is also one of only 57 consultant surgeons in the UK qualified to train other consultants in advanced keyhole techniques for removing bowel cancers. He is an early pioneer of this form of treatment, having set up from scratch the keyhole bowel cancer service at Warwick hospital, then trained junior surgeons and fellows to introduce the procedure across the Midlands. Mr Stellakis’ comfort and patient satisfaction scores are excellent, and he is audited on a regular basis.

Originally qualifying in Medicine from the University of Bristol in 1991, Mr Stellakis trained at a number of institutes of excellence in London, Paris and Strasbourg, before completing a fellowship in laparoscopic bowel surgery at Frimley Park Hospital in 2004. Mr Stellakis is additionally a fellow of the Association of Coloproctology, Great Britain and Ireland, and of the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons. In addition to his private practice he has 14 years’ experience as consultant laparoscopic surgeon at South Warwickshire Foundation Trust.
